Modular for flexible expansion
Festo Didactic's training packages are modular in structure. For example, you could start with the basic level of electrohydraulics and then move onto the advanced level. Or are you more interested in electropneumatics? The choice is yours. You'd like to explore a particular specialised topic? All equipment set components can also be ordered separately, so you can turn your own ideas into reality.
Position it – clamp it – done!
With the Quick-Fix mounting system, you can mount all components easily and securely on the profile plate or on the profile column of a Learnline workstation. The electrical units are clamped into the ER frame and sequenced individually. The supports and the electrical units are the same for both hydraulics and pneumatics – a single investment, with double the functionality.
Everything where you want it – systematic storage
Most equipment sets are delivered in practical, Systainer-compatible equipment trays. This equipment tray fits in the drawers of the workstations. The large pictogram on the components, designed in accordance with the latest standards, provides clear instructions for connecting the components and ensures short preparation and follow-up times. When dismantling circuits, you can quickly and easily locate where the component goes in the equipment tray.
Connect it – power!
Hydraulic power is supplied by the tool-free connection of low-leakage couplings – the latest generation in high-grade stainless steel. The coupling is self-sealing when uncoupled. During the low-friction coupling procedure, only the front surface is coated with oil, which saves resources, is easy on the environment, and reduces contamination.
Your choice of training environment
User-friendly training environments for specific topic areas:
- Self-study phases with the training programs
- Designing and documentation with FluidSIM
- Practical implementation with the training packages and the exercises in the workbooks
- Functional testing and optimization with measurement technology and FluidLab
Quality not quantity!
Bigger is not necessarily better. Volumetric flow rates and pressures should be chosen with care and in co-ordination with the system as a whole. This applies especially to hydraulic training systems. High forces and cylinder speeds not only increase the danger for the user, but also require a larger hydraulic power pack with higher power consumption. So our offer is: as large as necessary and as small as possible, without compromising on teaching effectiveness.
New technologies – new skills needed
Modern measurement and diagnostic technology and cartridge valves are among the international trends in hydraulics. So you'll find those technologies in our learning systems as well. Benefit from the compact, integrated design, the low weight, ease of handling, and easy-to-read symbol system.
The new training packages for mobile hydraulics systematically and informatively explore complex topics and systems, such as work hydraulics, hydrostatic steering and drive systems for the agricultural, forestry and construction vehicle sectors and warehouse and municipal vehicles.
The workbooks accompanying the training packages contain project-oriented exercises of increasing complexity. There are also positional sketches, illustrations, videos, animations and cross-sectional drawings, which explain how things look in the real world. For a complete and expert treatment of the topic of hydraulics, the training also covers basic physics, technical calculations, safety, efficiency, analytical fault-finding and professional documentation.
Practical basic and further training using industrial components provides the confidence to apply the acquired knowledge in the workplace. The components are specially selected for the exercises in the workbook. Note: nearly all hydraulic and electrical connections are located on the easily accessible upper side of the components.
